What is Haematology?

Haematology is a medical speciality that deals with the study of blood, blood-forming tissues, and blood-related disorders. Haematologists are specialised doctors who diagnose and treat conditions related to blood and bone marrow, such as leukaemia, lymphoma, anaemia, and clotting disorders.

The study of haematology includes the examination of blood cells and tissues under a microscope to understand their structure, function, and abnormalities. Haematologists also study the chemical and physical properties of blood, including its components, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Haematologists also work in collaboration with other medical professionals to diagnose and manage diseases that affect the bone marrow, lymphatic system, and spleen.

Who is a Haematologist?

A haematologist is a doctor who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders. Haematologists are highly trained medical professionals who have completed medical school and a residency programme in internal medicine. They have further specialised training in haematology, oncology, or both.

Haematologists work closely with other medical professionals, such as oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists, to provide comprehensive care to patients with blood disorders. They evaluate symptoms, perform diagnostic tests, and develop customised treatment plans that may include medication, transfusions, stem cell transplants or chemotherapy.

When Should You Consult a Haematology Doctor?

If you experience any symptoms related to blood disorders such as abnormal bleeding, bruising or clotting, fatigue, weakness, or shortness of breath; it is important to consult a haematology doctor. You should consult a haematology specialist if you experience any signs or symptoms of a blood disorder such as:

  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Recurrent infections
  • Persistent fever
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Sudden weight loss

If you have already been diagnosed with a blood disorder or cancer, it is essential to consult an oncologist haematologist for appropriate treatment management. Timely diagnosis and management by a haematology doctor can provide better health outcomes for patients.

What Medical Conditions Do Haematologists Treat?

Haematologists diagnose and treat many different types of conditions related to blood and bone marrow. Here are some examples:

  • Anaemia: A condition where the body doesn't produce enough red blood cells or haemoglobin, causing fatigue and weakness.
  • Bleeding disorders: Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease are two examples of bleeding disorders that prevent blood from clotting properly.
  • Blood cancers: Leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma are types of blood cancers that require diagnosis and treatment by an oncologist haematologist.
  • Clotting disorders: Thrombophilia and deep vein thrombosis are examples of conditions where the blood clots too easily, which can lead to serious health problems.
  • Platelet disorders: Thrombocytopenia and immune thrombocytopenia are examples of conditions where the body doesn't produce enough platelets, which can lead to excessive bleeding.
  • Bone marrow failure syndromes: These are rare conditions where the bone marrow fails to produce sufficient healthy blood cells.

What Are the Different Types of Procedures Conducted by Haematology Specialists?

Haematologists perform many procedures to diagnose and treat blood disorders. Here are some common ones:

  • Bone marrow biopsy: A procedure where a small amount of bone marrow is removed from the hipbone or breastbone to examine under a microscope for abnormalities
  • Blood transfusion: A procedure where blood is given to a patient to replace lost blood due to surgery, injury, or illness
  • Chemotherapy: A cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells
  • Stem cell transplant: A procedure where stem cells are transplanted into a patient's bone marrow to replace damaged stem cells
  • Venipuncture: A procedure where a small amount of blood is withdrawn from a vein for diagnostic testing

The Role of Haematology Specialist in Healthcare

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a haematology doctor and an oncologist haematologist?

While both haematology doctors and oncologist haematologists specialise in blood disorders, oncologist haematologists have additional training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of blood-related cancers.

Haematologists use a variety of tests to diagnose blood disorders, including blood tests, bone marrow biopsies, and genetic testing.

Haematology specialists treat a wide range of blood disorders, including anaemia, haemophilia, sickle cell disease, leukaemia, and lymphoma.

Haematologists may recommend changes such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, and stress management techniques to manage blood disorders.

No, a haematology doctor can also diagnose and treat conditions that may not be directly related to the blood, such as bleeding disorders, clotting disorders, and immune system disorders.

Haematology specialists often play a critical role in managing cancer treatment plans that involve chemotherapy or radiation therapy because these treatments can impact the patient's blood counts.

Yes, diet can affect certain blood disorders such as anaemia or iron-deficiency anaemia where dietary changes can help correct abnormal levels of iron and haemoglobin.

During your first appointment, the haematology doctor will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and may order blood tests to help diagnose or manage your condition.
